  • Aluminum frame features shaped seatstays and top tube for enhanced comfort and performance; tapered head tube improves strength and handling precision
  • Carema geometry is optimized to offer a comfortable, women-specific fit
  • Fork boasts a tapered alloy steerer with a 1-piece alloy crown for strength and stiffness where it counts; carbon legs help damp road vibrations and reduce weight
  • Updated Shimano Sora shifters and derailleurs offer responsive shifts throughout the 27 gears, even when in the drops, enabling you to spin the right gear for the grade
  • Tektro long-reach caliper brakes offer fender clearance and deliver dependable braking power
  • Eyelets for fenders or a rack let you outfit the Carema for wet-weather or commuting performance (fenders or rack sold separately)
  • Replaceable rear derailleur hanger helps extend the usable life of the frame
  • Specs on our Novara Carema women's road bike are subject to change


All bicycles sold at REI include a free warranty tune-up. New bikes go through a normal break-in period, after which readjustment is important for longevity and performance. Bring your new bike in to your local REI for its free tune-up within 20 hours of use or 6 months from purchase, whichever comes first. Contact your nearest REI bike shop to schedule this important service.

An oversize shipping charge of $75 applies to this item (plus regular shipping fees). Or ship it FREE to any REI store for pickup.
